Love Dr. Thorndyke!!
I am a huge fan of all Dr. Thorndyke books.. and recommend them to listeners if all ages. The reader of this recording does a fairly good job, but of course there is always room for improvement. The story itself I would rate with 5 stars..it's very intriguing and enjoyable, but the imperfect reading brings down the overall rating. However, I'm fond enough of these books that it's easy to overlook slight mistakes.

This is a very well presented story. My only caveat is the narrating. The narrator does a good job of using interpretation to discern characters, though some of her voice choices are gravelly and annoying, such as Mrs. Hornby. However, she does manage to allow the listener to discern most characters by voice changes. Some of the British accents were very Australian.
